Skip to comments.One chef’s social experiment: Charge minorities $12, white people $30.

If theyre a person of color, they pay $12. If theyre white, hell tell them they can either pay $12, or they can pay $30 two and a half times the base price, which reflects the wealth disparity in New Orleans. He tells them the profits will be redistributed to people of color, but not as charity just to any minority customers of his who want it, regardless of their income or circumstance.
When I tell black folks whats happening, 90 percent of them start laughing, like, For real? Theyre tickled, he said. White folks, theres this blank he paused and laughed, this blank look. Theyre like, Huh, okay.

Reverse it and see what happens.
I’d be afraid to eat food prepared by such a racist. No telling what he’d put in it or do to it to get even with the white ‘debbles’.
As a white man, I would politely pay for whatever drinks I may have consumed and walk out of the restaurant.
I understand this is a “social experiment,” but I’m not a willing guinea pig.
Need sued for civil rights violations,
I think that would be an incredible experiment. I would wager that none of the whites would laugh or get “tickled”, they would probably get worried or thoughtful, wondering what the lawsuit will look like.
The blacks would destroy the restaurant.
Whats new about this? There have been “Affirmative action bake sales”, where people were charged according to their victim status for cookies and cupcakes. The coloreds raised hell about it. This is the exact same thing.
Definitely “racial discrimination”.
Better yet, boycott the bastard until he goes out of business.
Hey, racism for breakfast, lunch, and supper.....sweet....not.
Take it to the bank that this chef currently has either zero or minimal white customers and is doing this solely for publicity.
Uh, okay . . . . . .
MLK is turning over in his grave.
Here’s another experiment, talk to my lawyer.
He gives white people a choice as to how much they will pay for a meal, but for non-whites he dictates the price of a meal.
Someone should file a federal civil rights law-suit against him...
Sounds like our current tax codes ....
Doesn’t our government already do that with it’s “redistributivre rights” via taxes,welfare, free college, and affirmative action?
Restaurants have a razor thin profit margin. Sounds like a great way to lose it all.
Theyre like, Huh, okay.
I’ve actually done this sort of thing. You need to get up and walk out.
discrimination based on color is against the law and someone should sue this person. Why isn’t anyone suggesting that? Certainly if a white owner overcharged blacks then there would be a tremendous cry..
